James Recommends Sunless Sea, a strange dive into the world of a Fallen London that's plunged beneath the sea into an enormous cavern filled both with literal devils and the humans who act like them. As a ship's captain you explore the dark and dangerous world and struggle to keep yourself and your crew alive. The entirely text-driven story is thoughtfully written and offers deep lore that feels like a reward for reading, but the lack of fast travel system does make the missions drag on unnecessarily.

Thanks for additional footage!
